We have a visitor this week. Sheri Myler, a student from the North of England is doing a week's placement with us. She is already very keen on cryptozoology and eager to learn. I confidently predict that she will be an asset to the cryptozoological community in years to come. However, we decided to put her to work, and each day she will be blogging about what she has been doing...
Today was supposed to be the day I was to have my fifty hour appraisal filled in, so obviously, today was the day I forgot to bring in my portfolio. It will have to be done tomorrow now, which shouldn’t really make too much difference. Hopefully, I won’t leave it in the museum or somewhere.
This also meant that I didn’t have my notes to help me write my blog, so it took twice as long. Then, a small amount of more time was spent doing the animal rounds and the discussion during them was slightly more in depth.
After a tea-break, came a lecture and lengthy discussion about cryptozoology. This involved guessing whether or not certain animal existed and/or if the abilities attributed to them by locals are true. I feel I did fairly well. This was followed by more specific discussion into dragons, in particular the megalania, and some quiet reading time around this topic.
This was followed by some free time, so I checked facebook, which slowed the computer down so much it had to be restarted. Then work resumed and The Journal of Cryptozoology was proof-read and corrected and, so, should be about ready for publication. The website has now also been set up.
The blogs, and other things that are usually done in the morning, are being done this evening so that we can depart for the museum in
Barnstaple earlier tomorrow. Tonight’s cat hunt will
follow, presently. Hopefully, there will be something exciting waiting, around
a corner, to be seen.
